  1. Hi Jonny and thanks for posting your build of the Bounty Launch, excellent stuff so far. We are in lock down too and I've just taken the plunge on the Occre version of the same boat and after an initial problem with the instructions being in Spanish, I'll soon be ready to start, in between working at home! This will also be my first build and although I'm a bit nervous about the planking side of it, its something to overcome and gain experience from. Anyway, stay safe out there and I look forward to seeing more of your build. Best wishes, Rob.
  2. Nice one Mike! Good to see an ex 'matelot' community on here.
  3. Cheers Martyn, and many thanks, nice part of the world.
  4. Hi Mel, I'm just north of Norwich Airport, small world hey? Thanks for getting in touch and it would be great to see how you get on. I also have a passion for F1 and used to run the security contract, albeit briefly, for the Lotus F1 team at Hingham. I'll take a look at the Occre kit you've got. I'm at the mercy of Amazon at the moment and waiting for my model to be delivered. Take care, Rob
  5. Many thanks for adding me to the site and to those of you who have already provided some great advice. I'm new to shipbuilding but have experience of various plastic/card kits and thought the time was right to take on a project, in light of the current world issues. Not wanting to bite off more than I can chew, I've opted for the Occre kit 'Bounty Launch', which will hopefully give me a good learning curve without being daunting and off putting. Any thoughts on my choice will be greatly appreciated. I come from a long nautical background, 23 years of Royal Naval service so have always had a deep interest in naval history. Cheers to all and stay safe.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
